This is how I wanna do it until I die:
Every Friday you and I
Make good time In the left lane
Of 81, to 64, 95, and then Shore Drive,
Where we're baptized in the low tide of the Chesapeake.

And we'll run our dogs along the Atlantic when the sun rises.
And you'll talk me down when I start to panic like the way I tend to do.
And when the summer heat dries out, we'll just keep heading south,
Until we can roll our windows down again.

Come on, come on, Get on my Sea Level

And I thought after three decades, give or take,
I'd start living like I'd bite the dust on any given day.
But I only feel my age when I'm making a mistake.
Days before we made a family felt like a practice take.

Still there's a tightness in my chest,
Where I cellar all this mess
You can see it on the days that I just can't hit a stride.
Sometimes I feel hollow,
But there's no echo when I swallow.
My heart just palpitates
When the speakers vibrate.

I am trying so hard to leave a better name.
To do more than just tread some water.
To be a better brother, son, husband and father.
I'll give a shit about being good,
I'll give my best to everyone,
I'll get everything on my to-do list done.
I'll try to love this city, like I don't belong in another one.
